The nature of work is being dramatically transformed as we head into the twenty-firstcentury. Technological advances andupheavals in product, capital and labourmarkets have altered organizational forms, restructured jobs and redefinedemployment relations. Demographic trends and newly emerging linkages betweenwork and non-work(schooling, family) have led to new career patterns and methodsof matching persons and jobs. Such changes pose important challenges for socialscientists, managers, policy-makers and millions of workers in industrial societies.This timely and first-rate collection of essays discusses many of these changes andupdates our theories andknowledge of the psychology of work behaviours.
